FAQs

If you’re interested in joining our team (many students begin as freshmen and stay on until graduation), please take a minute to read the following FAQs compiled from questions received from potential student employees. If after reading this you still have a question, please email us at LibraryHR@ucf.edu .

How do I apply?

Student Assistant Job Applications are available online and must be completed to be considered for employment in the Libraries. Don’t forget to include your class schedule, work availability, local phone number, and current email address. Let us know if you have previous library experience, knowledge of a second language, computer knowledge, or other skills you feel would be useful here.

What happens to my application?

Soon after an application is submitted, the student will receive a follow-up email containing further instructions and information about Libraries employment.  When an opening occurs, the individual department supervisor reviews all active applications in the database to identify students who have the skills and work schedule that meet the needs of his or her own work group.  The student supervisor from the hiring department contacts students directly for interviews.  Applications are kept in our database for 60 days.

When is hiring done?

The library is open year round and new student assistants join our team on a regular basis. Generally, most of the recruitment takes place just before the start of the fall and spring semesters.

Who makes the hiring decisions?

Because the library employs around 200 people and houses over a dozen individual departments, hiring decisions are made by individual department supervisors.  Library Administration does not have information about which departments are hiring and only becomes involved in the process once a candidate has been selected for hire. The hiring supervisors will contact applicants for interviews. It is strongly recommended that applicants bring an unexpired photo ID, original signed social security card, and voided check to the interview. If hired, these documents will be needed to complete the necessary paperwork.
